Earlier this week, Dwayne Johnson was announced as the highest-paid actor of the last 12 months, making $89.4m (‘73.6m) according to the latest annual rankings from the financial experts.

Notably all of the top 10 actresses earned above $20m (‘16.3) this year, compared with last year when only the top two – Johansson and Angelina Jolie made that amount.

Meanwhile, Jolie – who earned $28m (‘22.8) in 2018 – drops out of this year’s top 10 due to increased earnings for several of the highest earners in the top 10.

Scarlett Johansson tops Forbes best-paid actress list for second year

Los Angeles (AFP) – Superhero Black Widow is a woman at the top of her game, and so is the actress who plays her — Scarlett Johansson is the world’s highest paid actress for the second year in a row, according to Forbes’s annual ranking published Friday.

Johansson, 34, earned $15.5 million more than she did in 2018, primarily due to the immense global success of “Avengers: Endgame” — the final chapter of the saga — for which she earned $35 million.

But even though Johansson and her cohorts on the list all earned more than $20 million, pay inequality is alive and well in Hollywood. Johansson earned $56 million total over the past year, but that amount lands her at only eighth place for the combined list of highest-paid actors and actresses.
